Description

Description

Maybe you know the power of Revit software’s Family Editor but you’ve avoided it or it has intimidated you until now. Wait no more. This session will introduce you to the basics of Family Editor. Once you get past being intimidated, you will find that while Family Editor is extremely powerful, it can actually be great fun. In this short introduction to Family Editor, we will create a Revit component family complete with constraints and parameters. Don’t worry if you don’t know what a constraint or parameter is—we’ll cover that too. Whether you’ve never worked in Revit software before, or you’ve used Revit software for a while but you’ve simply avoided Family Editor, this class will teach you the basics of the family editor in a simple step-by-step fashion. (The session uses architectural examples, but the concepts apply to all of the flavors of Revit software, including Revit LT software.)

This session features Revit Architecture, Revit, and Revit LT. AIA Approved
